New larger HD not showing the correct size ?
Actually i'm changing from a 60gb SSD to a 120gb SSD
I restored my image onto the new SSD using shadow protect.
The system boots ok but in 'my computer' and treesize my new drive is only showing the original 60gb.
I went to disk management and that shows a 120gb drive with no unallocated space ! extend partition is greyed out.
so how do I fix this please?
Thanks for all and any help - always appreciated.

well what I see is my brand new 120gb drive only showing up as a 60gb drive- I named it like that because that is its true size.
as detailed before using Diskpart which shows it as 111gb and disk manager which also shows it as 111gb
so are you doubting after all that I have shown you it is really a 60gb drive that I have renamed as 120gb drive in the hopes that it will magically increase in size?
